Felling seams - advice for a newbie, please.

Postby Alic » Thu Aug 16, 2018 4:47 pm

I am stitching away at my first all-hand-sewn cote, and am wondering which way to "turn" the seams when I fell them. I remember dimly that the correct way for modern seams is that the side seams fold towards the back.... but what about medieval ones? And the side gores? and the sleeves? and that tricky bit where a seam going in one direction meets one coming from another direction? Does it matter, as long as the whole thing lies flat?
